The setting had potential: a run-down diner in Brooklyn, which suggested the possibility of a bohemian, hipster Taxi, with thwarted dreams and economic anomie deepening and contextualizing the humor. I was curious to see what new things might be possible with a live audience, three-camera format, after years of single-camera sitcoms. I wanted to see girls being funny.
What I got was terrible jokes featuring the word “vagina.”
But seriously, he’s right. 2 Broke Girls, you had so much promise.
(Also, how awesome would it be to be a researcher & writer for the Paley Center?)
